Today was not fantastic. I have problems when I just sit on my butt and do nothing for too long. I need more stabilization, more structure to enter my life. Summer is a wonderful break, but it’s time to regain focus and start getting to the grind again. I do better when I’m occupied and busy. I don’t do well when I have hours of unoccupied time because usually I just sit around and watch tv, mess around on the Internet, read, eat, etc. I’m not proud of what I do during summer. My “job” of which I got minimal hours ended last week, which is part of it, but still. It is depressing to sit around and eat. I hate it. I’m so glad I am not like this a lot. It’s mostly during dwindling summer days when I have nothing else planned. I feel yuck about myself today an for good reason. Tomorrow is a new day.
This race is the shiz. This is the most crazy race I’ve ever been involved in!! I’ve never gotten the opportunity to participate in this type of teamwork and camaraderie. So fun!!! My first leg was a shortie but it was hot as balls out there!!!! NO shade. The temp on the car after sitting there for 10 minutes was 114 freaking degrees so that kinda was like baking in an oven for 40 minutes. We got some dinner at a delicious dive in Salida Colorado and now are chillin at the exchange waiting for van one to throw down the gauntlet. Bring it. I can’t wait until I have to deck out in night gear…head lamp, vest, blinky light. Woooohoooo
Hey I have races that are coming up soon! I have the boulder 70.3 on August 5 and I am probably doing the virtual soaring wings half.
